Rugby festival report (1 August 2015)

On the 1st of August 2015 we hosted the annual 7s rugby festival. This year we had 4 schools participating namely: Enjabulweni school, SAIM Christian school, Waterford Kamhlaba and Sisekelo high school. We played 3 matches during the tournament. In the first game we played SAIM Christian school and won the match 36-0. In the second game we played against Sisekelo high school and we won that match 17-0. The deciding match was against our biggest rivals Waterford Kamhlaba and in a nail-biting encounter we emerged winners with the score line reading 12-10. We were overall champions of the tournament, well done to our boys.

NETBALL UNDER 16 and 20

On Saturday 18 July 2015, Enjabulweni Netball Girls’team travelled to Sisekelo High School for the under 16 and under 18 Netball Tournament.

.

Overall it was an awesome day! The under 20 team played against U Tech and Sisekelo in the group stages and lost both matches. Despite the loss, team-spirit was high and the under 16 girls had a wonderful time on the court as they won all their matches in the group stages. The girls played their hearts out and won 14 -3 against Bahai in a hotly contested match. The team then won with ease against kaZakahali to result in a 15 -1 score. After that high, the girls were psychologically ready to defeat Sisekelo, the end result was a score of 16-7. Finally Jabez received a crushing defeat from the team with a score of 20-0, as they were unable to match the skill and enthusiasm of the players.

.

Our girls qualified to play Sifundzani in the semi-final and won 7- 0. In the final, they played against Waterford in a nail-biting game but unfortunately, narrowly lost by 1 point as the final score was 8-7 in favour of Waterford.

.

On the 25th July the girls will be travelling to Metropolitan for the under14 and under 18 tournament. We wish them well and we know that our team will do us proud.

Head of School’s Note – 10 July 2015

END OF TERM DATES CHANGE

Grade 1—10: 7th August

Grade 11, 12: 14th August

In order to accommodate further training, the IEB has offered to return in the last week of term. School will therefore close a week early, that is, on Friday 7th August for Grade 1 to Grade 10. The Grade 11 and 12s will continue for the following week with a revised timetable of practice examina-tions. Winter School for the matrics takes place from Monday 31st August to Friday 4th September, inclusive. Ma-tric Prelims/Trials will begin on Monday 7th September. School reopens on Monday 7th September for Grade 1—Grade 7.

STAFF TRAINING: 10—14 August

It is always extremely difficult to stay on track with the latest in educational trends; the distances add logistics and costs that usually put these opportuni-ties way out of our reach. The IEB has very kindly offered to run the same training that a few were privileged to attend. This means, therefore, that the rest of the primary school staff, in-cluding the Teacher’s Assistants are able to participate without the incon-venience of having students dealing with a skeleton staff for supervision. The High School teachers have not had the opportunity to attend the vital Assessor’s Course for about six years. Completion of this course is now a pre-requisite for marking matric papers.

We are extremely grateful to the IEB for extending these opportunities to our educators.
